* Personal savings rate is calculated as personal savings (after-tax income – personal outlays) divided by after-tax income and reflects data through February. Employer and employee contributions to retirement funds are included in after-tax income but not in personal outlays, and thus are implicitly included in personal savings. Savings rate data are as of Feb. 2010. All other data are as of 4Q09.
